POLICY AND PROGRAMME EVALUATION IN
EUROPE: CULTURES AND PROSPECTS
JULY 2-4TH, 2008
Symposium gathered by the Société Française de l’Évaluation (SFÉ)
in partnership with the Gesellschaft für Evaluation (DeGEVal)
Sponsored by Members of European and national Parliaments
The European Evaluation Society will chair a pre-symposium networking
The French Evaluation Society will hold its eight gathering in July 2008 in Strasbourg, one of Europe's historic and institutional centres. The Symposium will focus on the cultures of policy and programme evaluation in Europe, considering both their diversity and their future: cross fertilisation? convergence?
The symposium will be an opportunity for the French and French speaking evaluation communities to strengthen their connections with other European countries. Following previous events like the Berlin conference organised by DeGEval (German speaking Society Evaluation) and the European Evaluation Society in 2004, the Strasbourg Symposium will be another opportunity to compare national practices across Europe with an aim to deepen the understanding of how evaluation contributes to modernising the public sector.
A separate event will be held on the eve of the Symposium under the umbrella of the European Evaluation Society in order to increase cooperation between national evaluation societies, the purpose being to accumulate and share experience and to increase the visibility of the evaluation community.
Evaluation in Europe is highly diverse: the evaluation practices in the 27 Member States show strong correlation with the organisational models that shape the making of policies. For instance, evaluation may take on a different shade when it is initiated on a compulsory or voluntary basis, by a national, regional or local government, or in a context of multi-level cofinancing (European and national levels, national and regional levels), or in response to
public opinion pressure.
European public arenas are also structured with considerable variability, depending on the rules of the democratic game: direct or representative democracy, parliamentary or presidential regime, federal or centralised system, checks and balance between government and parliament, etc. Each particular case is likely to fit specific evaluation styles and practices.
Moreover, the evaluation players are grounded in their specific institutions, e.g. legislative bodies, audit institutions, universities and research centres. It is however observed that evaluators share a common set of techniques and methods, and that meta-evaluations may validate good practices across professional communities.
The Europe of evaluation is in progress and it is now possible to imagine its prospects. We expect the Strasbourg participants to address this challenge by referring their analyses to the diversity and complementarity of national practices. The Symposium will focus on all facets of evaluation, (actors, institutions, methods, standards, professions, etc.) and across policy areas (development of territories, agriculture an rural development, economic growth, competitiveness, employment, welfare, education, health, environment, sustainable development, culture, infrastructures, public services …)
